Last month I went to the atelier of Ebby Port, a good friend of mine, to take some pictures of her atelier and of some of the clothes she designed. She has her own fashion brand, also called Ebby Port.
Ebby graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academie, but it wasn't until she began working for Kiki Niesten, a luxury design boutique in Maastricht, that she started designing her own clothes. So in 2013 the fashion brand Ebby Port was born. She focuses on small collections that reflect on time, art and music and comfort is highly valued.
She is also one of the designers represented by Fashionclash which is an international and interdisciplinary fashion platform with a main focus on a new generation of designers / artists. Ebby has participated, several times now, at Fashionclash Festival and also participated in various other projects in the Netherlands as well throughout Europe and the rest of the world. She even had her own fashion show at FashionPhilosophy Fashion Week Poland. Here she showed her latest collection called 'And then, there is dreaming'.
I think the name of her latest collection sums up perfectly what you can expect from her clothes. Her prints and patterns are made by hand. This way you truly have a one of a kind piece.
I really love her collections. It is something totally different from what I normally wear (minimalistic black, white or grey-tones) because it's quite colourful. But they are still easy to style and combine and the fits are really comfortable. And let me tell you, you'll feel like you just walked out from the catwalk ;)
Oh, and most important: her webshop will be online very soon!
